Sun Valley, ID (June 5, 2024)/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Sun Valley Resort is proud to be named on the FIS Alpine Calendar as host of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Final in Sun Valley, March 22-27, 2025.

Our legacy in ski racing dates back to the first Harriman Cup races of the 1930s, our first FIS World Cup in 1975, and most recently the U.S. Alpine Championships in 2023 and 2024, and we could not be more thrilled to continue making history as host of the first Audi FIS Ski World Cup Finals in Sun Valley.”

The schedule of events is as follows:

  • March 22- men’s and women’s downhill
  • March 23- men’s and women’s super-G
  • March 24- off day, no race events
